BSN Syntha-6 Protein Supplement::::Review

I got a lot of comments the other day about the protein powder I mentioned, so I figured I'd just go ahead and review it. I've learned about so many products through blogs so hopefully this will help you if you're in the market for a new protein powder.

the product:  BSN Syntha-6 Ultra-Premium Lean Muscle Protein Powder (BSN website)

nutrition information:

Yes, I know that is a lot of calories for a protein shake (for a girl). To me, these are GOOD calories that my body needs to recover after hard training. So I think it's worth it. A lot of the 'light' protein powders only offer 15g of protein per serving and based on the research I've done, that's not enough for me. There are obviously a lot of different opinions, but I've chosen to aim for at least 20 grams of protein after working out.

how i use it:  The night before my workout, I put 8 ounces of water in a Blender Bottle, then add one scoop of powder. Twist on the cap and shake! Then I put the bottle in the fridge overnight (you do not have to do this but in my experience it helps with the consistency!). In the morning I throw it into my gym bag and I drink it after I'm done training. Usually while I'm getting ready.
L to R:  water, pre-workout, post workout

what i love:  My brother steered me towards this powder and I haven't looked back. I ordered the chocolate peanut butter flavor and it is AMAZING. Seriously, it's like I get to drink a chocolate milkshake  after my workouts. The consistency is amazing (especially when chilled overnight) and it's rare that you get any chunks (if you do they're VERY small).

other random information:  The powder is sold in two sizes:  2.91 pounds and 5.04 pounds. On the BSN website, you can also get a sample pack of 4 servings for $4.99 (and free shipping). Both times I've ordered, I did so from BodyBuilding.com. Their website is amazing, I've had great customer service, and SUPER FAST shipping. Their website will show you the nutrition information (like above) for every flavor and will also tell you how many servings you can get from each size. They also have good sales!! Right now smaller tub is $55.49 on BSN and $29.99 on BodyBuilding. So definitely check them out. You can also get two free samples of several different products when you order.

***I say this to point out the obvious:  I am NOT a personal trainer or dietitian. I am just a girl who likes to lift weights and drink delicious drinks afterwards! These are just my opinions. I was not compensated by BSN, Blender Ball, or BodyBuilding.com in anyway. I purchased the products. ***

  4. I'm big on protein shakes. Or just protein when working out. I usually eat a ton of grilled chicken and drink chocolate milk. My mom has been making me more shakes while I'm on vacation and I love them. It's really important considering how we drive our bodies the way we do! :)
